Pokemon-Like Temtem Alpha Test Begins

Over this summer Temtem was all the rage, everyone was talking about it thanks to their Kickstarter campaign. Now the team is proud to announce that the Temtem alpha test has started today. For the first time, fans will get to dive into the world of Temtem to catch creatures and make friends.

If you are expecting to take part in the Alpha and haven’t received a key yet, don’t worry. They’re sending them out in batches. Which batch you fall into is based on when you backed them on Kickstarter. Those who backed them first get first access.

The announcement that the game is now in alpha was made on Kickstarter where they also offer a few tips. Temtem is a challenging game and they encourage you to use items if you’re in trouble. There are no tutorials in the game yet but the menu opens using tab and you can interact with NPCs and signs using F. They’re also asking that if you see a bug you report it on the forums. Only a few of the Luma are available in the game right now; Paharo evo-line, Umishi evo-line, Kaku evo-line, Pigepic and Barnshe.

If you aren’t lucky enough to be in the Alpha and you don’t have a friend with a spare key you’ll still be able to see the game in action on Twitch and Youtube as streamers and content creators get in.

The developers recommend you check out their Discord server or Twitter to get the latest news about batches and how everything is going.

There isn’t any word yet on how long the Alpha will continue for. But, the devs have said that if you have an Alpha key that only grants you access to the Alpha and once they move into Early Access you’ll no longer be able to play the game.

Temtem’s Kickstarter Wraps Up with Over $550k Raised

The Temtem crowdfunding drive officially wrapped up to a pretty rousing success. The monster-collecting MMORPG pulled in over $550,000 worth of backer funds, securing all of the stretch goals that the devs lined out for the game.

The exact amount is $573,919 raised by 11,715 backers. This amount of money not only brings the previously detailed Clubs guild feature, but also confirms the $500k weekly Tournaments stretch goal. The game, incidentally, has also become the most crowdfunded video game to come from Spain ever according to the newest update.

On the subject of stretch goals, it appears that the devs at Crema will not be taking any more pledges or adding further stretch goals in the interest of making sure the game meets its targeted early access release of September 2019 on Steam and a full launch in May 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The related platform announcement does state that cross-play is being worked on, but may not be possible on all platforms, naming the PS4 as a direct example.

And as for the Taco Hat pictured above, every backer who hopped on the hype train at the minimum $16 level will be getting that in-game item.

“There was a lot of interest in the features we had, but without the huge IP backing the game we weren’t sure if you would like it,” reads a post from the devs. “But boy, oh boy! You’ve cleared that doubt from our minds.”

Our Thoughts

Congratulations to the devs at Crema for a rip-roaringly positive crowdfunding drive! We are definitely counted among those who are looking forward to how development of this adorable critter-battling MMORPG plays out and hope that everythingt goes as smoothly as it possibly can.

Temtem Hits its Nintendo Switch Release Stretch Goal

With 17 days to go in the creature capturing MMO’s crowdfunding campaign, the devs have confirmed that Temtem Nintendo Switch is happening after meeting the seemingly lofty $250k stretch goal. In addition, the devs have offered up a little FAQ in its latest update.

Around 5,000 backers have contributed to the game’s Kickstarter, helping the project hit precisely $263,600 at the time of this story’s writing. “We’re incredibly humbled by the community’s response and by how well the Kickstarter is going,” reads the update post.

The next stretch goal in the campaign sits at the $280k mark with a replay feature to let players re-watch their last competitive match. After that, a Clubs feature – the game’s answer to guilds – will be implemented should the game hit $400k.

Clubs are a deeper feature than one would expect, as the devs want to include systems like the ability for Clubs to own a Dojo on each island and a weekly event where Clubs can battle for control of a Dojo along with typical features like a guild chat.

“Making a Guild system is a very long and intensive task and we already have a very long road ahead with the current features planned for Temtem,” reads the post. “That’s why we’re putting this Stretch Goal a bit further away than the others, so we can ensure that funding will be enough to hire the people needed to make our vision for Guilds a reality.”

The arrival of the Nintendo Switch version has also brought along a related FAQ with some important pieces of information. The devs are going to look into making cross-platform play with the PC work; the game will be releasing the Switch version as a digital product only; and Temtem will not feature an offline mode.

As for releasing the game on PS4 and Xbox, the devs did state that the current goal for the Nintendo Switch release was part of the campaign. However, they also rather interestingly hinted at “a more specific announcement in the coming days.”

Our Thoughts

HMMMMMM. Well, that certainly sets one’s gears grinding. On point, we’re very excited to see the Temtem campaign is doing so well! With that said, we’re looking forward to seeing some more playable demonstrations of the game sometime in the future. We also, of course, hope that this project doesn’t suffer from feature creep going forward.

Pokemon-Like MMO Temtem Gets Funded and Heads to Stretch Goals

With the official Pokemon series more focused on Nintendo platforms like the Switch or the DS handhelds, it’s possible that most fans of the game type who prefer PC gaming are feeling a bit left in the cold. Which is probably why the Temtem Kickstarter campaign has been successfully funded and has even nailed down its first significant stretch goal.

The details of Temtem all sound and look familiar to Pokemon fans. Players will be occupying the Airborne Archipelago of Omninesia in search of Temtem to tame and control in turn-based combat. What breaks the game away from the Poke-mold a bit is the fact that Temtem will focus on true large-scale multiplayer with live, visible players, along with a campaign that can be fully experienced in two-player co-op. The game will also feature player housing, plenty of character customization options, and a competitive ranked ladder mode.

In addition to these features, Temtem has opened up its first major stretch goal of a “Nuzlocke mode”. The term will be very familiar to Pokemon fans, but for those of us out of the loop, Nuzlocke refers to a challenge mode where any creature that faints is considered dead and can no longer be used and players can only capture the first creature they find in an area. Temtem’s Nuzlocke mode will also feature these rules, but will also require that all captured creatures be nicknamed and will completely reset your game if all of your Temtem are taken out.

Additional stretch goals for Temtem include an arcade bar where players can spend in-game currency to play minigames, the addition of a mythical Temtem along with a unique quest and area for it, and a release for the Nintendo Switch.

As of this writing, the Temtem Kickstarter sits at over $94k raised over its original $70k goal with 28 days to go. You can check out more details here.

Our Thoughts

Here’s hoping that Nintendo doesn’t pull a PUBG Corp and attempt to sue the devs of this upcoming MMO for making their game look too much like Pokemon, because we like the idea of having a new creature-battling title on the PC.
